Goals

Campers will explore the exciting world of ornithology in this camp co-presented by the Bell Museum and The Raptor Center, learning about birding in different habitats and spending time with winged ambassadors (eagles, owls, falcons and more). They’ll visit the museum’s dioramas and scientific collection of birds to learn about birds of the world, comparing their habitats and anatomy to understand how they’ve adapted and evolved over time. Campers will also meet experts in field research, raptor medicine, and bird training.
